Sign Design and Wayfinding for Jaypee Palace Hotel & Convention Centre, Agra
One of our first design and build projects.
Jaypee Palace Hotel & Convention Center is a leading 400 room 5 star resort property and the largest convention center in Agra. Designed to marry modern architecture and local materials and building techniques, this hotel was built to offer a royal experience to the modern traveler.
Our design solution was to rationalize the room addressing system by introducing 'Level and a 'Wing' in the room numbers and reflect the same in the navigation signs. Our design paid homage to the prevalent material and techniques in the region. We used black slate and sandstone for all our external signs which complimented the predominant building cladding material and was stood out of the architecture by virtue of their colors. All information on stone was laser engraved into the stone with an inlay of materials such as wire cut SS and epoxy paint, much like the engravings found in Mughal architecture.
All our interior signs were made in DuPont Corian and Teakwood where again all information was inlayed into the material surfaces.
